Spice Merchant Beaconsfield is our prestigious flagship Indian restaurant, located in the historic area of Beaconsfield Old Town in Buckinghamshire.

The varied menu consists of much-loved traditional Indian pot dishes, such as Bhuna and Jalfrezi as well as an impressive selection of modern and creative dishes to tantalise your taste buds and expand your knowledge of all things Indian.

Whilst visiting, why not take a peek at our large Indian garden? With three separate seating areas and enough space to comfortably accommodate 140 people, it is ideal for al fresco summer dining and private parties.

For those who would prefer to dine inside, rest assured that our conservatory and restaurant are garden facing, providing you with a scenic view to complete your dining experience.

Throughout December our famous marquee will be partly covering our garden to provide guests with a private party venue amongst nature!

The staff were pleasant enough but the service was extremely slow pretty much like an afterthought. I certainly would expect better food and service for the cost, very overpriced but that could be down to the area.

They then brought out the bill without us asking for it and then the credit card terminal. They asked if we wanted desserts, we asked to look at the menu- there was none… the waiter recited what they had. We then asked if they had hot drinks menu for after dinner- nothing and the only drinks they could offer were basic English breakfast tea or coffee. I did expect better from a restaurant of this standard.

Just tasted like a normal curry from any high street takeaway. The seating was so tightly arranged and at times I couldn’t push my chair back to stand because the table behind me had their chairs straight up against my back. Pretty much immediately after we finished eating, we could see the staff eyeing us to leave. And we felt uncomfortable and as if we were imposing even when there was no time limit on the table.

We couldn’t eat everything so had the food packed up and we ate it two days later and was sufficient for another meal and tasted as good as freshly cooked. I know some reviews have said it’s expensive but the quality and taste and obviously it fed us twice, the cost was good for us.

A lot of the food was good but the mains such as the chicken korma felt very rubbery and over cooked. A shame as have had great food there before, but today value for money given the quality of food wasn’t great

A group of men on a table nearby had a lot to drink and were in a party mood. They're entitled to that but it meant the three of us literally couldn't hear ourselves talk and my husband went home with a headache that lasted til the next day. This would make use think twice about returning as the waiters clearly prioritised this table (who undoubtedly were bringing in money) over ours...and our evening was definitely spoilt.

The food was amazing, particularly the seafood platter and the very enormous onion bhaji - our son was delighted ! The staff were really attentive and ensured our daughter felt special. We’ll be back really soon. Keen to try out the afternoon tea that others had and looked really appealing.
